Cable VS Fiber
WHICH ONE IS BETTER: LET THE GAMES BEGIN
The type of internet connection you use has a direct impact on everything you do. If you are a business, it will impact how your workers perform. It will also affect your bottom line. It could even affect how you and your clients relate to one another.
A lot of small business owners don’t have the time to really focus on making a good choice. They are too busy worrying about other things. At the end of the day, their hastiness ends up costing them in a big way.
You can avoid this mistake. Here is breakdown between two of the biggest options out there. See for yourself which option is good enough for you.
U-VERSE MIAMI: FIBER VS CABLE
CABLE: This one is always offered through a cable provider. You must have a modem. You must also have it all professionally done. Don’t attempt this by yourself. The price is usually a bit higher; however, if you get something in a bundle, you might get some type of discount.
This one takes a bit longer to install. You can have a professional do it or do it yourself. It’s usually better to have someone else do it. It will save time and money. The main difference between this and the cable is the cable itself. With the first one, the cable is already there. With fiber, you have to run a cable. These cables are as thin as human hair. If you do decide to install the cables yourself, speak to someone first. You might not have the service contract coverage.
CABLE: It’s okay, but I’m going to be honest. If you live in an area where outages frequently happen, this might not be your best option. It’s best to have some sort of backup plan. Like an option B. I say this because, it’s going to happen.
FIBER: This one might be more idea with reliability. The conductor is made of glass. Which means, it’s not going to pick up any of the electricity. If something does go out, not much will be affected. You can pretty much carry on, business as usual.
CABLE: This one is readily available, no matter where you are. The only drawback is you have to have cable television. If you don’t have the access, then it won’t work.
FIBER: This one is not so easily accessible. That is changing, though. As we speak, more areas are offering it. It’s going to take time. The choice is yours. If you really want fiber and it’s not in your area, how long are you able to wait.
CABLE: Cable has a reputation of being fast, depending on your plan. The only drawback is the latency. There tends to be delays with certain packages, depending no where you live.
FIBER: FIOS is the real deal. It might be small, but it packs a lot. Many have said that FIOS is even faster then regular cable. Which means, you can download and upload multiple things. You can do this all without performance being affected. Cable doesn’t even give you this.
Each has their own pros and cons. The choice is yours.
